To err is of course human. But to mess things up spectacularly, we need an elite — Yanis Varoufakis

¿Where was going PP to get 185 seats with 70% participation? I asked myself, not believing the polls.

Well, from the major vote transfer PSOE to PP in the history of Andalucia.

A pleasure

Tired of being the vote granary of the PSOE. Chronically very high unemployment.

Green vote is hard to get in Spain, most people think that employment is prioritary respect to environment protection. They should have gone with IU-LV (Izquierda Unida-Los Verdes: United Left-Green).

Equo's number 2 was Inés Sabanés, formerly and for over 20 years the face of IU in the Madrid city council. I'm not sure how she got ejected from IU but Equo was never going to join IU after Sabanés became important within it.

With over 50% counted, the vote percentage begins to be robust. Equo got 2/3 of the votes they needed to get seats (3%)
